We moved to Billings 11 years ago only to be sadly disappointed by our options for sushi. Since then, more options have opened up. Our experience tonight was also our last at nara. Our service was slow, food was crazy slow, check was even slower. I would think that with the competition, well, whatever...

Went in on a Friday night; the hostess warned us that there would be a long wait even though we could get a table right away. Turned out to be a two hour experience! Plus the sushi wasn't special at all. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. Best sushi in the world? No. When in Billings, go for steak.

The Nacho Roll is sooo good. Hands down the best sushi in Billings! The special rolls are saucy, no need for soy sauce

The sushi is a work of art created by Dae! The taste is world class, and it is reasonably priced for value. This is a place you can go alone and meet new people at the bar or visit with Dae or go with friends and family no matter the group size. They will also cater or make for take... More

This is just plain great restaurant. Really no frills just great food. Expertly prepared. Service is always good. The menu is just what you would expect. Price wise it is in line with any "Sushi" type restaurant. For Billings and the olive garden crowd it could be considered a little high but what do they know? It is worth every... More

This is by far the place place in the world. If you want the best meal in the world order the ginger salad and order of wings and fat boys and the main dish order the rolling red or enter the bacon . So good

NaRa has never impressed me. It isn't bad food/sushi but nothing I think I want to eat again. I have been here 4 times over the years and that is definitely enough for me. There is not a good selection of sushi rolls, the food is bland and the wait staff do not seem to care if you are there... More

I was pleasantly surprised. Good Japanese food in Billings, MT? Yes! It exists! I had the miso soup and the lunch order of pork dumplings, with a healthy side of hot sauce. Ended up preferring the sauce that normally comes with the dumplings. No idea what's in it, but it was spectacular. Great service, too!
